Two men were charged yesterday following an incident at Mount Sheridan.

Officers entered the address and spoke with a 26-year-old male resident. Another police crew located and spoke with another 28-year-old male resident outside the address.
Whilst attending to the incident, officers observed cannabis plants growing both inside and outside the address and a further search was conducted. Four plants and a number of pipes and other drug related items of interest were located and seized during the search.
Both men were charged with producing a dangerous drug and possession of drug utensils. The 26-year-old was additionally charged with possession of a dangerous drug whilst the older man was also charged with obstructing police.
They are scheduled to appear in the Cairns Magistrates Court later this month.
